Inter-sectoral coordination of rehabilitation can reduce the number of dropouts from chronic heart disease courses
The Department of Cardiology, Lillebælt Hospital, Vejle, has implemented a development and implementation project on the gradient of the inter-sectoral coordination of rehabilitation for patients in chronic heart disease courses conducted in cooperation with the Municipal Health Centre, Denmark. The project was financed by the Region of South Denmark through the Danish Health and Medicines Authority. Implementation of a nurse hospital-based case manager is shown through the project to reduce dropout and opt-outs under the sectoral transition significantly.
